NEW YORK — They posed for photos with the Vince Lombardi Trophy (but didn’t touch it), congratulated each other on making it here to Super Bowl XLVIII and hugged when it was over.

Now Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and Denver Broncos coach John Fox head into two days of final preparations for Sunday’s title game, away from the media crush that ended with Friday’s joint press conference at the Rose Theater at Time Warner Center.

“You take individuals and you try to paint a picture of where you want to get to, and I think this is the pinnacle of it,” Fox said. “Like different levels of football, there’s only one happy camper at the end, and that’s going to be the team hoisting that trophy.”
